Mozilla Firefox browser stops responding

Every time I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser I can never get rid of the problem wherein it stops responding until I am forced to close the browser and open again.

However, instead of switching to other browsers, I still prefer Mozilla because I notice that it works faster than others, yet it is irritating when suddenly it stops responding.

How can I resolve this issue?

Do you have many plug-ins?

I prefer you to delete all unnecessary plug-ins except adblock plus. plug-ins may cause the not responding of the Mozilla Firefox. its still too the best browser for me because of its lesser lag even if you have a slow connection, you still can browse properly.

I also have some experiences like yours and its getting annoying already, until i deleted all plug-ins.

And now, my Mozilla Firefox works just fine. try also deleting your cookies and internet cache, it floods up your Mozilla Firefox.

If you have a theme installed in Mozilla, try to change the theme to its default theme or try a theme that it is not too big, sometimes, it causes extra load to your Mozilla Firefox.

Firefox can be unresponsive for many reasons. Please try any of the following ways. Well if the problem does not happens after a specific action, like after downloading a file or going into a specific page then you must create a new database.

1.  Creating a new database may solve this problem. At the top menu, click on Firefox button. Then go to the Help menu and select Troubleshooting information.

2.  A new window will open. Select Application Basics tab, then a new folder will be open.

3.  In that folder search the files named places.sqlite and places.sqlite-journal and rename them. Simply add .old at the end of the names.

4.  By this way a new database will be created. Then restart Firefox and hopefully your problem will be fixed.

Another way is to delete duplicate session restore files:

Follow step 1 and 2 from the above then search files named sessionstore.js. If there is any you must delete it. Restart your browser and the problem will be solved.
